Sew Along

About a month ago my friend Maggie suggested I buy Heather Ross' book Weekend Sewing. I've learned over the years to listen to Maggie, and as usual, I was not disappointed. After I told her how much I liked the book, she suggested we do a "sew along."

So throughout September and October Maggie and I are going to work on some of the projects from Weekend Sewing. Though you know me - I probably won't make things verbatim from the book; I am certain to alter them just a bit. Plus I'll be working on a Candy Land birthday party as well as Halloween costumes, so things won't be 100% Heather Ross around here.

You'll join us, won't you? C'mon, you know you want to! Grab the image above and the button on my sidebar and use them. (If you need help adding it to your side bar email me and I can walk you through it - it's super easy.) Let me know you're in (via comment or email) and I'll include you in a list of participating blogs. Then, as you finish a project from Weekend Sewing, post about it. In two months you might finish one project, or maybe you'll finish three. It really doesn't matter - just be inspired and have some fun. That's what this project is all about.

I have this book also. Maybe I can whip something up.

I already have a summer blouse cut out. I'm in!

Count me in. I've already made the Guest Room Slippers, Checkbook cover, and Town Bag (from an old suede skirt that's way too small on me now). I think my next project will be the Everything Tote.
